If you’re interested in ideas about increasing the number of visitors to your website, check out this presentation that I gave to Austin’s Hacks and Hackers. The purpose of the group is to connect developers (hackers) with journalists (hacks).
The Most Important Take Away
People love data …when the data is about themselves.
The Rest of the Story
The name of the presentation is “7 Awesome Examples of Writing that Drives Eyeballs to Your Site.” I give detailed examples of 7 different types of writing that can result in increased web traffic–5 of which I’ve used at Cubit. My focus is on how I measure results and the different tools that I use to accomplish those results.
Also, here’s the first 17 minutes of the presentation on YouTube. After that my camera died (so sad). However, Cindy with Hacks and Hackers was able to video the entire presentation and hopes to have it loaded to their website very soon. I’ll update this blog post with that link when it’s available.
Let me know if you have any questions about using data journalism to increase visitors to your website.
